You can groove to reggae and calypso music and toast the sunset with cocktails made from island-distilled rum, but nothing gives you the true flavor of the Caribbean like dishes made from local ingredients. You’ll find the most authentic versions in food markets and street stalls (ask local residents for recommendations), but chefs at many hotels and resorts also have incorporated locally-inspired dishes on their restaurant menus, making it easy for you to sample them. From conch fritters to flying fish, these are the island foods that have us daydreaming about our next trip to the islands.
